We are looking for people with a creative urge. People with an eye for the big picture - and the little detail that makes the difference. People who want to leave a lasting impression in a dynamic environment.

What's in real estate for me?

For many people, real estate is not something they have experience with, or deal on daily basis. It is, however, a land of big opportunities: real estate costs a lot and often carries personal value, and selling or buying real estate is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Dealing with real estate in Germany is a complicated process with lots of steps, paperwork, arrangements, and mediation. We believe that technology can make the painfully long process better and faster, and we work to make it happen!

What have we done so far?

  • built up four independent cross-functional teams. We are proud of our people and want them to develop and grow;

  • built an interactive map of rental and sell prices for properties, spanning the whole Germany;

  • built state-of-the-art ML-powered valuation/appraisal solutions to determine how much a property can be sold for;

  • built custom CRMs to support and streamline daily operations;

  • automated creation of PDFs documents that are a major part of the selling flow;

  • and more :)

What can you expect on the tech side of things?

  • Full-blown Rails apps

We will take any other technology if it fits our task nicely.
